West Brom claim their first Premier League win since last August
After months filled with struggles, West Brom defeated Brighton 2-0 clinching their first Premier League win since defeating Burnely on August 19.
It took West Brom only a few minutes to open the scoreline against the visitors, as Jay Rodriguez connected with a corner sending the ball to Jonny Evans who headed the first goal of the day for the Baggies.
Brighton’s Glenn Murray and arguably the most impressive playmaker of the league’s lesser 14 teams Pascal Gross were kept quiet through out the first half as Ahmed Hegazi and his teammates were giving masterclasses at the back.
Craig Dawson had two chances to double West Brom’s lead, but his first header went wide and Mathew Ryan was present to stop the right back in his other clear cut chance.
With Murray failing to cause any damage upfront, he was still left an important spot before the first half whistle as he stopped Matt Phillips’ shot with his hand, sending WBA coach Alan Pardew mad on all the officials for not awarding his side a penalty.
As the second half kicked-off, Dawson learned his lesson firing a bullet header past Ryan making it 2-0 for the home team after less than 10 minutes on the clock.
WBA successfully kept their sheets clean for the rest of the second half stopping every Brighton & Hove Albion chance.
After 2o winless games in a row West Brom finally broke their duck against the Seagulls, as they move on to their next game against Everton with hopes of garbing a second win to escape the relegation zone.
